  1. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is one of the several great Android smartphones for power users, thanks to the convenience of its large 3,200mAh battery. However, if you want even more power, Mugen has you covered, as it has released a 6,500mAh extended battery for the Note 3. Since the Mugen extended Note 3 battery is thicker than the stock one, the company also provides a custom back cover to house it. It’s available in black or white, and the end result makes the Galaxy Note 3 a bit thicker than its usual 8.3mm waistline. Mugen states its extended Note 3 battery lasts 2.03 times as long, which is logical judging from the 6500mAh capacity rating. Happily, it also comes with NFC chip inside, so the Note 3 doesn’t loose points in the connectivity department. The battery currently sales for $98.50 on Mugen Power’s website. First shipments are expected to arrive on December 6. Source
  2. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo and Note 3 Neo LTE+ got officially unveiled (by Samsung Poland). The Neo is the long rumored budget version of the Note 3. It provides the well-known S Pen experience at a lower price tag. Compared to the original Galaxy Note 3, Both smartphones have pretty much the same weight, thickness and battery capacity, but the Neo is slightly shorter in lenght and width. Design-wise, the new smartphone is almost a complete match of the original Note 3, complete with the faux-leather plastic back. The Galaxy Note 3 Neo however has a slightly smaller screen (5.5-inch vs. 5.7-inch) with only 720p resolution (as opposed to 1080p) and the camera is only 8MP with 1080p video recording (as opposed to 13MP with 4K video recording). There are differences in the used chipset as well. In fact it's under the hood that we find the most notable difference between the two newly announced Note 3 Neo models. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo LTE+ will ship with a hexa-core chipset, which consists of two 1.7GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex A7 cores. Users of the HSPA+ version on the other hand, will have to make do with a 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU. Chipset differences aside, the two versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo both feature a 5.5” 720p Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in memory (about 11GB will be available to the user), and a microSD card slot. The main camera is an 8MP unit with BSI sensor, capable of capturing 1080p videos. A 2MP front-facing unit will be in charge of video calls and selfies. Connectivity is fully covered on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. In addition to LTE+ (up to 150Mbps) or HSPA+, the phablet features Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 (LE), NFC, GPS/GLONASS, and an IR blaster. The latter is listed as market-specific so it won't be available everywhere. The Note 3 Neo will come with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. The usual plethora of TouchWiz tricks will also be present, as well as the full S Pen functionality of its bigger brother. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo measures 148.4 x 77.4 x 8.6mm, while its weight tips the scale at 162.5 grams. The phablet is powered by a 3100mAh battery. Source
  3. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo looks to be more of a refresh to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 rather than a dumbed-down version of the Note 3, as it features the Galaxy Note 2's 5.55" 720p Super AMOLED display, 8MP camera, and 3,100 mAh battery. Even the RAM and internal storage are the same at 2GB and 16GB, respectively. What is interesting, however, is the new 1.7GHz dual + 1.3GHz quad-core (Hexa) processor powering the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. We didn't get much details throughout the document beyond a mere mention of the name and the clock speed of the two sets of cores. It'll certainly be a step up from the 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos found on the Note 2, but the question is how will it compare to the Snapdragon 600 and 800 chipsets out there. Could it feature Samsung new HMP solution - the one that allows all cores to work simultaneously? It would be an odd move for Samsung to debut their new killer processor tech in a "lite" model device, but this industry has certainly seen stranger things happen. The good news is that Samsung is bringing over its slick new faux leather back cover from the Galaxy Note 3 (probably why it lends its name), and is a slimmer device than the Note 2 to boot. Also included are all of the Smart Features from the Note 3 and S4, including Air command and Advanced Multi Window. We've been hearing talk of a new 720p Note variant for quite some time now, and although the leaked promo packet doesn't mention a release or announce date, MWC 2014 next month sounds about right. Be sure to check back with us for all the breaking news on the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. Source
  4. The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 started rolling out in test batches for the SM-N9005 version in Europe, or you can sideload a certain leaked firmware if you are so inclined, too. In case you want to check out what's in store with the Android 4.4 KitKat update for your trusted phablet, take a peak at the video below, which walks you through the new features and alterations in the interface. The guy rightfully concludes that the new Magazine UX, as found on Samsung's PRO tablets of late, or whatever it equivalent will be for its phones, is not going to appear on your Note 3 with the KitKat update, as it is probably meant for the new crop of flagships from Samsung, like the Galaxy S5. There are subtle UI changes, though, like the transparent status bar and white icons there, brought about by the stock KitKat. As for new features, some are also the ones that Android 4.4 brings, like the ability to chose your default launcher from Settings, including third party ones, or choose your default messaging app to be Hangouts, and so on. If you fire up the music player now, you will get full screen album art on the lock screen, similar to the Nexus 5, and also the default keyboard stocks a bunch of emoji emoticons. Google's Project Svelte has brought on a number of improvements under the hood, too, that make the Note 3 with KitKat feel a lot faster than before, and that's perhaps one of the biggest changes you'll notice right away when the update hits your phablet.

  5. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 broke cover last September packing a powerful hardware sheet. But it seems like the company could be announcing a refresh soon, if a demonstration given during the Mobile World Congress is anything to go by. Qualcomm and Samsung teamed up to show off a special variant of the Galaxy Note 3 during the event which was optimized to run on the Snapdragon 805 chipset. This chip allegedly uses LTE Category 6 instead of Category 4 which is the current standard. With this new LTE modem, users will get up to double the bandwidth compared to the current crop of LTE chips. Qualcomm mentioned that the Snapdragon 805 chip with this LTE modem would make its way to devices later in the year, with Samsung possibly being one of the early adopters. Given Samsung’s LTE experiments in its home region of South Korea, it is possible that this new variant would be launched there first. At about the same time this year, Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 3 successor. So it’s possible that we might see the Galaxy Note 4 sporting this new and advanced Qualcomm chipset. Source
  6. Samsung has started offering a Galaxy Note 3 Olympic Games Edition - although it looks like this is available only in the Netherlands for now, with no word on a wider availability. The Note 3 Olympic Games Edition isn’t different from the handset’s regular version, but it comes in a special packaging. This seems to include tickets to skating sessions in the Amsterdam Olympic Stadium, and a special flip cover. Buyers are also offered the chance to win tickets to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, which takes place between 6 and 23 February in Russia. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Olympic Games Edition is offered by Dutch carrier KPN for free on select plans. It’s not surprising to see a Galaxy Note 3 Olympic Games Edition, since the new Note is the official phone of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, and it's been gifted to all participating athletes.

  7. Samsung have been falling over themselves making different statements to users about the controversial region-locking of the Note 3, now they may extend this to older devices such as the Galaxy S3. Last week we reported on the unpopular move made by Samsung to region-lock the Galaxy Note 3, and since then Samsung have attempted to clarify the move with even more confusing statements to the press and customers on the issue. One Samsung official said that if the Note was activated "the right way" in the region it was purchased, then sim cards from other regions could be used in the device; which just leaves us wondering what purpose a region lock serves at all. However in practice this doesn't seem to be the case; users on XDA have been complaining that even though the European model was activated correctly, the Note 3 would not accept cards from other regions such as Africa or Asia, which has resulted in anger from customers and some scathing reviews on Amazon UK. Another rep also told a customer over the phone that the European Galaxy Note 3 handsets are only meant to work in that region, and once Android 4.4 KitKat arrives the regional lock will be extended to some older Galaxy devices that include the Note 2 and Galaxy S3, even if they are over a year old. However, if the varying statements made by Samsung are anything to go by, things could change by the time Android 4.4 comes around - one would at least hope. Galaxy S4 units sold in Europe and Latin America have also been shipping with the same sticker that warns that the device can only be used with sim cards in that region. Samsung has defended the move by stating that the practice will help stop the illegal import of their devices in certain countries, but if their earlier claim is true in that people can still activate in the region it was purchased, and then be able to use a sim card in another region, this doesn't seem to align with their claims that they need this to stop the illegal imports. All this serves to do is anger customers, create a situation where Samsung owners are forced to accept the higher roaming charges, and possibly even deter those customers from buying another Samsung handset in the future. Backpedaling on older devices is also something that won't go down well with owners; is Samsung really that worried about illegal imports of the older Galaxy S3, or is something else at play here?
